At the Autumn Fair yesterday Dave and Diane Stapleton of Decklid Auto Services presented the car they have donated to CPR’s representative Eliza King, Responder and Rota manager of CPR.   Thank you Dave and Diane for your generosity.  We have arranged for an article and pictures to be published in Murcia Today.

Having a CPR car is advantageous to the family of CPR responders with only one car, as they are no longer tied to staying on site during a CPR shift.  It also raises the profile of CPR as people will see it driven and parked around the resort.

Decklid Auto Services is situated close to the roundabout where the new Mercadona Supermarket is located on the road into Mazarron Town.

Sports for all

Posted by naranjosjardine1 on October 25, 2014

Last week we had a bit of a sporty theme with a darts and a Golf competition. Well it would be a sporty theme if darts is classed as a sport. I’m never to sure but with the soaring temperatures we have experienced this week, darts could be the suitable sport of the moment. With afternoon temperatures recorded as high as 38 oC, inside with plenty of liquid refreshment maybe the way to go. At least everybody out for the 1/2term break will find pleasure in the hot temperatures. The children are even in the pools – at the end of October!

The Condado Club hosted the darts championship over last weekend. On Friday night, Elvis style entertainment followed the darts, Saturday there was an individual darts competition and Sunday afternoon, after the presentation and announcement of the winners, an exhibition match was held followed by entertainment by Dee in the evening. As we have never been to a darts exhibition match we decided to go and check it out. The exhibition match turned out to be the former Darts Champion Bob Anderson playing members of the audience and mainly winning, although some individuals did beat him. It was different, unusual and made a change to the usual entertainment. Did I attempt to play – no way. A neighbour recently invited us around one evening to play on his dart board. He has the dart board outside of his downstairs apartment positioned between the patio window and the corner by the front door. Unfortunately there was no backing behind the board so that when the darts missed the board, holes were made in the white walls. After making a few holes and hitting the light several times I decided darts wasn’t for me so I watched the darts matches at the Condado Club and joined in the dancing to Dee. Dee was a pleasure to listen to with her amusing tales and music mixes.

The sporting theme followed on Tuesday when golfers played for the Norwegian cup. This championship, organised by the golf society, is a popular competition which is in its 5th year. Norwegians and other Scandinavian countries join forces and competed as a team against Great Britain and Ireland. The overall score at the beginning of the day was 2-2, with GB and Ireland holding the trophy as they were last years winners. The Norwegian team won the match on Tuesday making the overall score 3-2 in their favour. (GB and Ireland will win next year!) If you want more details about the day and the evening ‘do’ then go to the Golf Society website – cdagolf.com where Barry will have written all about the day and the evening presentation.

And out and about a new sign has been put up renaming Camposol A as Los Palacios, Camposol.  As you can see from the picture the word sign is a little understated.  It is actually a fantastic piece of artwork.  I came across an interesting article by the Camposol Gardening Group http://cracamposol.com/news/?p=1330 and found out the artwork was built and designed by Jason Jessop of ART of STONEWORK which combines local stone with traditional Yorkshire craftsmanship.   The article calls it a monument which is a more appropriate word than ‘sign’.

If you are around the Camposol area then keep an eye out for it.
